Barrientos – Feel The Waves EP
We first discovered young Glasweigian talent Barrientos in 2012 via the always on point synthglasgow.com blog. His debut mix for them effortlessly mixed tracks from Atjazz and Matthew Styles to Loco Dice, Vince Watson and Steve Rachmad and took the listener from the early bounce as the club doors open right through to hands-in-the-air madness of a packed dancefloor. We loved it. He also released the good-time, sun-soaked Sky EP (for free via Soundcloud) around the same time and the quality of both his music and production really stood out from the crowd.
Since then he has delivered 3 remixes for Glasgow Underground (Romanthony, Walker & Royce & Visitor) gaining support from a wide range of DJs such as Junior Sanchez, Mark E, Sasse, Sean Brosnan, Grum, Russ Chimes, Coyu and Severino.
“Feel The Waves” is his first full single release. And what a killer bunch of tracks he’s delivered. If you want a floor-filler there’s the heavyweight garage bounce of “And Uh” and the classic M1 organ house of “On My Mind”. If you’re looking for something deep and vocal the blissed out summertime beats of “Feel The Waves” defintely make you feel like you should be beachside at sunset with a beer in your hand. And if you need something to bring everything back down again, look no further than “Los Suenos”, a solid, slow-burning Latin groove that sounds like Mark E remixing Gui Borrato and “Eventide” – the best ambient song we’ve heard in years.
